What does the app do?
Pre Check app is an interactive breast model that shows some of the breast changes associated with breast cancer. The home screen resembles a breast and by touching the interactive screen, users can learn the 9 signs of breast cancer. For example, puckering, skin like orange peel, lumps, etc. The Ready to self-check screen is a guide on how to check your breasts, with detailed instructions on how to do the touch, look and check method. Users have the option of setting a self-check reminder which will send a push-notification to your phone.
✔ Interactive breast model with 9 abnormal findings. The phone vibrates when you touch an abnormal area.
✘ The app doesn’t help women make an informed choice about whether to self-screen/self-examine, with no education about the risks and the evidence arguing against the practice.1
